 Mysterious deaths

I have had 6 zebra finches for a couple of years in a large outside aviary. They share the aviary with 4 canaries with no problems. Today I found all 6 finches dead on the floor of the aviary with no signs of bodily damage, a complete mystery!? Any ideas as to the cause of death out there?

Probably too much stress from the canaries. They might not seem it, but canaries do much better off on their own. Birds can die of stress. Stress makes them bigger and easier targets for sickness. also, Zebra Finches can die from drafts, so it isn’t the best idea to have them outside.
